This is why fans of Bon Jovi were waiting with bated breath to see how he'd respond to the news.
And when asked during a radio interview with Andy Cohen on SiriusXM, he gave his honest opinion which will warm the hearts of both his fans and the happy couple.
Responding to a question which probed if he has any "worries" about son Jake and Millie Bobby Brown getting engaged, he replied: "I don't know if age matters."
The Bon Jovi rocker behind hits like 'It's My Life', 'Livin' On A Prayer' and 'Bad Medicine' has himself been with his high school sweetheart Dorothea Hurley for almost his entire life.
Though they have been together since their teenage years, the couple didn't marry until 1989 - they secretly tied the knot at the Graceland Wedding Chapel and have been happily married in the 34 years since.
Jon and Dorothea share three other children alongside Jake - Stephanie, Jesse, and Romeo - and revealed that three out of his four children are currently engaged.
"I don't know if age matters," Bon Jovi stated. "If you find the right partner and you grow together, I think that would be my advice, really, is growing together is wise."
"I think that all of my kids have found the people that they think they can grow together with and we like 'em all" he added.
